Happy Birthday, Gerry!

22 August 2007


My husband, Gerry celebrates his birthday today! It is his first experience with the maƱanita (i.e. It is a Filipino birthday tradition where friends and/or family surprise the celebrator with songs and greetings at either midnight or dawn of his/her birthday.), however uniquely. Also probably his first in having a midnight phone call from extended family well wishers and an e-mail greeting in the Filipino language. Have a beautiful day ahead, sweetheart!

After we toiled for our films, we all got together for a party, of course–to show and perhaps soft critique our films. These are some of those in Doug Killgore‘s Rice University Documentary Film Spring Class. What Is Your Passion? using Adobe Premiere Pro 2.0.

Meeting of friends. Knowing among friends. Noises-inside and around. Then there was the natural cheering up followed by their toasts. I quietly lifted my own glass in peculiar solidarity and association.
